Lucifer MorningStar

8 June 2021 – Year’s School-Ending Concert

Sat&Sun: – plx be vigilant, be safe and stay home if you do not have to be anywhere, eventhough we are not under total lockdown. To family&friends in Malaysia, our neighbouring country – take good care, be safe&healthy under their Movement Control Order/MCO (MCO in Malaysia while in SIN, it is known as CircuitBreaker=total lockdown) which started on the 1st. Here’s special thoughts to bro Lawrence who is now under medical care in KL/Malaysia.

We make every effort to see that our actions live up to our words and be vigilant with regards to our behavior – Thomas Sankara

A peaceful&quiet weekend with late morning’s heavy downpours to catch up with cheesy flicks+Lucifer S5 E1-16, another eye-candy! The translators of this version took the word from the Latin Vulgate, which translated הֵילֵל by the Latin word lucifer=the morning star, the planet Venus, or, as an adjective, light-bringing. Another piece of useless trivial info for Lucifer MorningStar fans like me!

Sinners think they are saints, but saints know they are sinners – PeterKreeft

Mon: #1 on summer break from the U, and #5&6 enjoying their last few months with just one single digit to count their age!

Sooo missing yet another year’s school-ending sound of music from my flock in USA&Norway – #2/harp, #3/cello, #4/double-bass. Just discovered that #2 plays the harp, appreciations to their paternal grandmom, Cindy for sharing these pix! Memories of Sun-Brunch on the QueenMary in LongBeach,CA/USA where there was someone playing the harp in between the ice-sculptures!

Not seeing my overseas family&friends is not getting easier! Somedays are more difficult than others and this is one of them, probably due to the lack of sleep having pulled a neck muscle. Hoping&praying that this pandemic will soon be over and can look forward to catching up again.

Appreciations to Gel for visit and for the yummy BakChang/Zongzi 粽子 steamed glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings wrapped in bamboo leaves + SoonKueh筍粿 steamed dumplings stuffed with chives or bamboo shoots or dried shrimp wrapped in a skin made of rice&tapioca flour.

Tue: Happy World Oceans Day. App@NHC/SGH, first time here – a cuppa+a bite hit the spot after a long wait for a check-up.

Did not realize about the Kopitiam here, so did not bring my card to get any discount! Nice to be able to sit outside – must be the only location to be able to sit and eat since no dining in and only take-aways restrictions started!!

The below link was posted by ATC and my comment&total recommendation – take it from someone who did not know better when hiking the AT-Thru-Hike then, fording the Kennebec River, ME/USA 24Aug2005. It was a very dangerous, nerve wrecking and a stupid thing to do, so plx DO make use of the ferry service provided.

KennebecRiverFerr 2021: 28May–30Jun 30:  9 to11hrs daily. 1Jul–30Sep 9 to14hrs daily.

From Garry7Jun: around the block # 14. Out of Darwin and first camp was at the delightful Pussycat Flats Racecourse – a few kms from Pine Creek! Well 12yrs ago it had been a racetrack, rodeo ground and a golf course- now its a campground with lots of green grass and a bar from 6-8! Then off to Victoria River Roadhouse but stopping in Katherine for coffee with Ian Falk and also at Willeroo Station to buy some much needed fuel. The red moon eclipse was practically clouded out! Bummer.
Trip around the block #15. After Timber Creek crossed into WA where the border controls for both fruit and veggies were as strict as the controls for dangerous Victorian refugees urgently fleeing their virus riddled state! Onward to Wyndham – a town done with both dying and death and now firmly in decay! Has four claims to fame. 1. Australia’s northern most town.
2 the world’s largest cement crocodile – tons of cement and miles of chicken wire, and….. designed by computer! 3. A great towering lookout over the crocodile infested delta into which 5 rivers flow. 4. ‘Kaiser’ – the oldest surviving internal combustion engine in Australia!
What town could outdo that list? But, the big meatworks is gone and there is a small iron ore loader operating. Everything else seemed closed – including the crocodile breeding centre! Hardly needed! Great bosb trees at Perrys Farm Wilderness. Boab fruit ź like big kiwi fruit with white marble-like interior.
Crocodiles are easy, they try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first ― Steve Irwin
Trip around the block #16. Camped at Parry Farms, a wilderness spot where the mozzie were more scary than Michaela Cash and big enough to put a saddle on! Then off across the mud delta and down a long dirt road to the infamous
Prison Boab Tree. This huge hollow boab, still alive, was used to imprison Aboriginal men being brought from Derby to Wyndham to face court. 20 men could be crammed inside the tree for the night and any more were chained by neck and leg to the outside of the tree. Also stopped at the Gorotto. Impressive gorge and swimming pool. Onward to Kununurra
